Passing on data from Outgrow to another tool using URL
If you'd like to pass data from Outgrow to another tool, you can pass the data via the URL, you add to the button or CTA on the results page. Select the values you'd like to pass and they will get added automatically to the URL.
1. For this, you can navigate to the Integration tab under Configure section, and then navigate to the Outgoing Data sub-tab.
2. Choose the fields for which you want to transfer the data using the redirect URL. You can currently transfer the following details as a part of the redirect URL:
A. Questions: You can choose the option selected or entered in each question.
B. Lead Form: For Lead Form, you can transfer data related to Email, Full Name, First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, Phone Number (US), and Location.
C. UTM: In case you captured UTM parameters from another source from where the user arrived at your Outgrow content, you can transfer those parameters using the URL as well.
D. Custom Variables: Data related to any Custom Variables that you have created in Outgrow can be passed using the redirect URL.
E. Other Variables: Using Outgrow a lot of other traffic and analytics-related parameters are automatically captured, and you can pass these using the URL as well.
3. Click on Publish to save the changes in Outgrow.
Once the user goes through the Outgrow content and clicks on the CTA button, the user will be redirected, and the details will be transferred to the third-party tool. In case the redirect URL is that of another Outgrow content piece, the details will be transferred from this content piece to the new content piece.
